Dell announced on its blog that the XPS M1330 notebook started shipping. They explain the ramp production took a bit longer than they expected because of the unique nature of some of this notebook's features.
Dell says the estimated ship date for new XPS M1330 orders is now four weeks, and special features like LED backlit LCD displays will add time to those ship dates:
The important point is that we are now building orders to ship to customers worldwide, and we will keep working to ship these notebooks as quickly as we can. I'll provide another update by mid-next week to give you a better idea for where we are in working through the backlog.
At this point, estimated ship dates for new orders is about four weeks. Like I mentioned in my previous post, some specific components like the thinner WLED display will add time to those estimated ship dates.
I know many of you have been waiting eagerly for your XPS M1330 notebooks, and we appreciate your business. We are working through details in real time and will look to provide updates when we have more details to share.
